MSENSE® VAM

Use vibro-acoustics to analyze the heartbeat of your tap-changer

On-load tap-changers are among the most important and critical components of power transformers. It is therefore crucial for grid operators, to be able to ascertain their condition at any time. Based on our experience from over 20 years of tap-changer monitoring, we have developed a unique online diagnostic tool: MSENSE® VAM.
VAM stands for vibro-acoustic measurement and this device can be used universally for all types and brands of OLTC. 

Good to know: Our service goes even one step further. Our VAM ANALYSIS SERVICE offers a detailed report with recommendations and actions

Preventive analysis detects possible weaknesses early on

Preventive analysis detects possible weaknesses early on

  • Mechanical irregularities in the tap-changer, e.g. on the spring mechanism and during the switching sequence
  • Time differences in the switching process compared to reference measurements
  • Contact anomalies in the tap-changer 
  • Bent selector arms

Unique diagnostics technology

The basis of MSENSE® VAM is a vibro-acoustic measurement system with high resolution which analyzes vibrations generated during the switching sequence of an OLTC. Using various mathematical methods, envelope curves are generated from the time-frequency spectra emitted during the switching sequence. These envelope curves are then evaluated with the help of a dynamic, limit-value curve which uses a self-learning algorithm to more closely approximate the envelope curve with every switching sequence. The measurement makes it possible to recognize operating-time deviations and mechanical inconsistencies that all ect the tap-change switching sequence.
